Academy Music Group (AMG), concluded negotiations with the University of Leicester's Students' Union to launch O2 Academy Leicester on campus in September 2010.
The Students' Union, housed in the Percy Gee building, is the heart of the University of Leicester and currently undergoing a £15m development. The introduction of the 1,450 capacity live music and club venue is an integral feature of this programme, with first-class facilities to cater for the biggest live acts on the touring circuit.
With a vibrant local scene, there will be two additional production-complete venues on site, O2 Academy2 Leicester (500 capacity) and O2 Academy3 Leicester for 250 patrons, all of which will operate independently, as well as simultaneously.
The investment forms part of the university's £1 billion development framework plan and Leicester has nearly 23,000 students, ranking among the top in the country for student satisfaction and Students' Union services.
